1960-1970 - Plastic baubles

Ask for more information:

The 1960’s marked the introduction of plastic that was to become the prominent raw material for decades. By cutting PVC foils, one was able to produce decorations that were more durable and more colourful than ever before, while the material could even imitate tinsels and stars made of precious metal threads – just like the decorations until then.

The first generation of plastic baubles did not last long, however, as these rather soft baubles were replaced by harder ones in 1967 when a new blow moulding method was introduced.
